A new documentary on James Taylor and Carole King has been commissioned by CNN and HBO Max. It was announced yesterday (October 20th) that Carole King & James Taylor: Just Call Out My Name will premiere on CNN, while domestic streaming and international distribution rights will go to HBO Max.
Frank Marshall is directing and producing the film, which is still in production. Marshall is best known for the 2020's The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart doc, as well as The Gift: The Journey Of Johnny Cash, and Laurel Canyon: A Place In Time. No premiere date has been announced for Just Call Out My Name.
According to Variety, “The documentary will focus on the duo’s 2010 world tour, dubbed the 'Troubadour Reunion Tour.' The title referred to their having played together at West Hollywood's famed Troubadour club when they were starting out in 1970, and a subsequent six-night stand they did there in 2007 to celebrate the nightspot’s 50th anniversary, which that led to their taking it on the road to global arenas three years later.”
